A new research has found that adult food allergies are on the rise in the United States. The rise is so alarming that the reported cases have gone up nearly four times in the past ten years.
The most allergy causing food item was found to be peanuts which constituted around 26y per cent of the insurance claims that happened in the past ten years. Peanuts were followed by tree nuts, eggs and dairy allergies.
Another study also revealed that around 53 percent of the American adults developed an allergic condition after the age of 18.
